Got the door card off and can see what's happening.
The locking mechanism appears to be catching (or refusing) to move down so the door does not unlock properly,

Also noticed that if you turn the key hard in the lock (and keep the pressure on) you are able to open the door, with your other hand.

Have I got to replace the whole locking unit, or is there something else I need to look at.

Any help would be appreciated, as it seems I've got to attack the window mechanism to get at the bits I need.

Once again, Thanks for any responses.
